posted is up

As you can see, I have posted.

Now Vanadia can, if she chooses, have Willow walk in just As Asher is putting the blankets on the two passengers. So don't assume that Wyatt and Ash will be alone for long before the doctor enters. Also, something will be happening in around 7:45 so don't too far in your actions.

Both shuttles would have an emergency first aid kit that Willow would have "stocked" well for the possibility of doing "field" surgery. Willow strikes me as a be prepared type and that would include a hypo-spray, dermal menders, adrenaline, and a general anesthetic.

What does a girl have to do to be believed around here?

No one trusts a pretty face any more.

Sorry Teller

The lie about being a courier is complicated by the fact that couriers usually are hired not to be noticed and to move as fast as they can. You are doing neither. If I were to make a suggestion, I'd work on the lie to explain why you lied so you don't get caught with the lie.

Loki question

Loki asked me a series of questions that were very good so I am posting them and my answers here for everyone to see.


1a) Is it within John's abilities to build a long-range transmitter, one powerful enough to reach Sihnon? (Also, would that be a Create/Alter Technical Device check?)

It would be an INCREDIBLE complex action with each roll representing 1 hour dedicated. The transmitter is there in the building, you would need to boost the signal, change the frequency to modulate over commonly used bands and you’d need to build an amplifier. You would also have to activate the fusion reaction.
1b) Could the gang of nerds that were previously checking out the Roc's engine room be encouraged to aid in the construction of such a transmitted?

Sure but only one of them has practical knowledge. The others are all theoretical physicists and frankly, they do not work well together.
1c) Would John be able to salvage or use the equipment within the atmospheric processor to build and power a long range transmitter?

Yes. The Fusion reactor here can pump out a lot of power. The transmitter is here, it is just the matter of “fixing it” to be off the cortex and use frequencies to which someone might be listening.
2a) Is the room at the base of the processor large enough to house the Roc's passengers and crew?

Definitely. You could get everyone in here with comfort. If you explore a bit, there are “barrack” type rooms above you.
2b) Is the room at the base of the processor a defendable enough position should the crew or passengers attract any unwelcome attention?

Depends on the definition of defensible. Yes, you could get everyone in here, close the doors and limit the access that bad guys would have to you. But the walls are not armour plated, you have a fusion reactor in the middle of your building and the atmo processor is a large unmoving target to any ship with a targeting system.
3a) I know you've said the parts we need are in the upper shafts of the processor, but could we get a list of the parts and where they may be located?

You basically need to steal a turbine that you can fit in the drive pod of Rocinante the fit doesn’t have to be perfect, just be able to spin long enough to get you off planet. Then you need to steal some hydraulics and steel to jury rig a door system for the drive pod to shut it off when you are in space.
3b) Are there any obvious or apparent ways to access the shafts near the top of the building?

There are stairs and catwalks. I have not posted a fully description because you just got in the door
4) Does John know if Atmospheric Processors keep spare parts around somewhere?

Usually anything worth money is taken with the terraformers when they leave. It is possible that something is left behind.
5) Where could something be found/what could be used to patch the crack in the Roc's reactor core?

The reactor is surrounded by special plates and one is cracked. Wolf has spare plates but has to wait for the core to cool before he can do so (see my post on page 46 of game)

in the end

One thing I need to work out is how much it will cost you to fix the drive pod properly when you are done. that could cost some serious coinage in the end.

Ouch... coinage.

Sounds good. Oh, this is fun!

Great posts

Great posts all around. I believe we are just waiting on John and Wolf but since they are in a different building, I can update this weekend either way.

New Firefly game

New Firefly game to be released soon
Not sure what to think of this. Glad to see more for Firefly but not happen about possible new system. Although the Cortex Plus might just be the current version of the Cortex game.

Posting

I'll try to get a short post up before you update, if not I'll just backpost a bit as I don't think anything I write will be massivly consequential.

Dang!

Unfortunately, Alacrity had to deliver such an awesome post so late (relatively) at night...I hae my post half-written already in my head, but can't afford to stay up late to actually post it!

Tomorrow night...I promise!
